“Post-apocalyptic,” “turn-based,” “strategy,” and “tactical.” Those are all descriptors for Insidia, the new game from Italy’s Bad Seed that’s live on Steam in open beta today.

Insidia features a colorful cast of characters, each sporting a unique blend of abilities: passive, active, and ultimate. The 1v1 battles pit your team of misfits and rogues against your opponent’s, with the goal of attacking and sabotaging the enemy’s base. Players plot out their turns in advance, and then watch as their champions execute their orders — and their enemies, if things go well.

Six champions are included in the open beta, with another six planned by the time of full launch. As with any strategic PvP title coming out these days, an esports scene is also in the works, with Bad Seed striving to become the first indie game on FACEIT’s eSports platform.

You can try Insidia for free now on Steam, or take a shot with the $17.99 Founder’s Pack.

    Hey stop pretending. You are all obviously employed by Russia to destroy the capitalism economic system. This is all a plot to revive german idealism and complete the system.

    The game looks ok.

    Wow, I’ve not heard of this game before but it looks promising! I’ll definitely give it a try!

      lol stop shilling. it is so obvious you are a developer or someone else working for them. it does not look promising at all. Teribble UI/UX, constant screen shakes, huge time pay to win etc.

        He’s no more a developer of this game than you are hired by their competitors to spread the lies.
        -_-
        The game is pretty nice, kinda like 1v1 Atlas Reactor only without stupid mistakes with payment model. It will probably still drown in the sea of MOBA-like games because it’s a bit too niche IMO.

          Shut your mouths you are bunch of an unemployed delusionals, CURST you are probably one of the co-developer for this failing piece of unpromising garbage game and trying to escalate the feud with these hard working competitors.
